Phindy's Place Friday - Monochromatic Green

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!  Hooray to all of us for making it through the work week!  The weekend is just around the corner and then most of us will have 2 days to catch up around the house and hopefully find some time to craft, craft, craft!  We are coming off two gloriously beautiful days and spring fever has sprung!  I could not believe the number of robins on my front lawn yesterday and seeing them made we want spring to come even more!

Today at Phindy's Place our challenge is to make a monochromatic green card.  What a fun color to use to make a card this month since St. Patrick's Day is almost here!  Phindy has so many cute images that would work well with this theme and so for my project I chose the Phindy image, Special Luck.

Materials I used to Make this Project:
Copic Markers - C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, G28, G17, G05, G02
MS small butterfly punch
Prima flowers
Fiskars Small flower punch
EK Success foliage Punch
Spellbinder's oval and Scalloped oval dies

Here's a close up of my colored image.

I've made my card following the sketch at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog.  I'm entering my card in their challenge this week!

Here's the sketch from The Sweet Sketch Wednesday Blog.
